Important Notice To Bidders: Chinese ceramics and other Asian art forms, have been copied from earlier examples for hundreds of years, making it very difficult to date such objects. Opinions often vary from one specialist to another and sometimes it is almost impossible to achieve a consensus of opinion. For these reasons, Preston Hall Gallery strongly urges all prospective bidders and/or their agents, to personally inspect any such items they wish to bid on prior to the auction. ALL references to place of origin, date, materials used, condition, etc., are merely the opinion of Preston Hall Gallery and/or the consignor(s) or estate trustee(s) for said property and do not constitute any kind of warranty or guarantee of authenticity. If you or your agent cannot personally inspect the auction lots before the sale, and if you require absolute certainty regarding their condition or authenticity, Preston Hall Gallery strongly recommends that you not bid on the property.
